The latest member of Nick Helm and Nathaniel Metcalfe’s Fan Club is music journalist, writer and editor David Hepworth.
Talking to presenters Nick Helm and Nathaniel Metcalfe about his highly successful career, the former Smash Hits Magazine editor said: “Lots of my friends are kind of former editors of Smash Hits. Mark Ellen and Berry Mcllheney and all sorts of people. We all say that if you are standing up in any gathering, anywhere in the world and you are stuck for something to say, just say, ‘I once edited a magazine called Smash Hits, did anybody once read it?’ And you can be guaranteed! Anywhere in the world! The House of Lords or Australia or God knows what, a load of people will go, ‘Oh yeah, Oh God.’ And interestingly enough, they’ve got really warm feelings about it.”
During the show, the trio also spoke about the rise and fall of Q Magazine and how men and women react differently to the music they like. You can listen to the full chat with David Hepworth today from 1 PM on FUBAR Radio.
